Oral surgery might be necessary for patients who need extractions, therapeutic surgery, or root canal surgery.
Why might oral surgery be part of my treatment plan?
In most cases when bone or gum tissues are deficient or diseased, we are able to replace these tissues to enhance both function and aesthetics.
There are numerous methods at our disposal to put back what was lost: synthetic graft materials, bone and skin from tissue banks or borrowed tissue from elsewhere in the mouth.
When excess or diseased tissue needs to be removed, our diode surgical laser performs many soft tissue procedures with a minimal need for anesthetic and no need for stitches.
Do you offer sedation options for oral surgery?
To make your surgery as comfortable as possible, we offer a number of oral surgery services which can be performed with a local anesthetic, nitrous oxide, or IV sedation. Read more about our sedation options.
